In this post I'm featuring a few of my photos from my trip to Maui in November.
I spent 5 days on Maui, but most of my favorite shots came from one marathon adventure day, beginning with this shot of sunrise atop Haleakala (the 10,000+ ft. volcano that crowns the larger landmass of Maui).
From there my fellow adventurers and I embarked on the journey through Hana, which involved several stops along the way.
We stopped at a place called Ohe'o Gulch, also known as the "7 sacred pools." (A fun side-note is that the pools have never been sacred to anyone, and there are not 7 of them. This name was apparently created by a clever entrepreneur in Hana who was trying to create alluring destinations along the way that would bring more people, and thus business, to Hana.)
Regardless of what you call the place, it's definitely worth visiting. As I hiked up the hill above a certain point, I found myself in an incredible bamboo forest. It was one of the most beautiful places I've ever been!
With only one day to myself, I still came back with several of my favorite images to date. I can say without hesitation that I'd like to spend a bit more time exploring Maui.
